Motto: Try a different angle*
How do you see your role with Brüel & Kjær?
My role is to help integrate Discom into Brüel & Kjær and to make Brüel & Kjær successful in production testing.
What is the best advice you’ve been given?
To keep trying. At the age of six, I set out to build a small plane. I crashed with it on the slope of my uncle’s garden – it did not fly at all. His advice was to try again with a different design. Reminding myself to look at things from a different angle still helps me in my daily work.
If you could have two super powers, what would they be and why?
Flying would be one of them, and I’m sure that anyone who has ever flown a glider would agree. Healing people would also be a marvellous gift.
What drives you in your work?
The unique opportunity of following a product through its entire life cycle: from ideas to development, from production to customer applications. Then refining it, re-designing it and creating the best possible solution.
What irritates you most about your own personality?
I should probably have a little more patience with others.
* An (in)famous developer rule says: 90% of the time the problem is not in the 10% you are looking at.
